Momus says

Momus makes a record about sex for children. At least, he makes a record about sex for the child in all of us: the part of us that refuses guilt, that plays with mud pies, that soils its nappy, that loves to suck and be sucked. He abandons melancholy, he abandons satire and politics – the negative elements which have earned him a reputation as ‘the gaunt minstrel of modern angst’. He presents, in songs which gurgle with babyish delight, a utopia of sorts, a place where sex without consequence is celebrated without censorship.
